Real Madrid coach Zidane: Ramos the flawless role model

Real Madrid coach Zidane: Ramos the flawless role model

Injured Real Madrid star Isco and Dani Carvajal won't play tonight's Clasico tie against Barcelona.

Real are aiming for an unprecedented third successive triumph in the Champions League era when they face Jurgen Klopp's side.

One player who particularly needs a strong performance is Gareth Bale after seemingly dropping to the bottom of Zidane's pecking order in the attacking positions, so expect to see the Welshman fired up - possibly even playing for his future at the club - if he is given a chance to impress.

It will be right to say that Los Blancos are unsafe team away from Bernabeu and with the way their confidence level is this season they are capable of returning to Bernabeu with a good result against their bitter rivals Barcelona after the full 90 minutes, lest we forget Zidane's men have been to the Camp Nou this season for the Spanish Super Cup and grabbed a decent away win over the Blaugrana outfit to claim the Spanish Super Cup title before the commencement of the La Liga. We, with respect, won't do it for them because they didn't.

"A Clasico is a Clasico and at the end of the day it's an important game in the season", Valverde told a news conference.

Deportivo La Coruna made the gesture ahead of their game against Barca last weekend while Barca gave Real a guard of honour at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2008, after Los Blancos had already won the league.

"Some say it is as they were not in the competition, but that is not true".

I would like to finish by saying one simple thing: I will miss you. "Thank you every much", he said. Thank you for being such an important part of my life.

"I don't consider them not doing one a sign of disrespect". Zinedine Zidane rested key players in a 2-1 win over Leganes, but he is going to field the best possible side against Barcelona in the La Liga derby.

On their early exit, Suarez said: "Obviously we are frustrated about the Champions League, because of how the games turned out, but that's in the past now".

Conversely, however, Zinedine Zidane's team have their pride at stake after suffering a humiliating 3-0 home defeat to Barca earlier in the season, and they would dearly love to regain some bragging rights by ending their bitter rival's quest for a flawless season.

Andres Iniesta has a minor calf injury, but coach Ernesto Valverde is expected to start the veteran midfielder in what will be his final Clásico. "Under me it will not happen", Zidane said.

"In the Champions League, more factors come into play - good luck, bad luck, sometimes in the Champions League there are more candidates able to win. I'm convinced of that", he added.

"We'll shake his hand, congratulate him and wish him luck for the future".
